Summary note:
Jean Dubuffet (1901-1985) achieved international recognition in the late 1940s for his paintings inspired by children's drawings, the art of psychiatric patients, and graffiti. Drawing played a major role in the development of his art as he explored on paper new subjects and techniques, experimenting with nontraditional tools and modes of application. Despite his essential role in the postwar avant-garde and his continuous influence on the art of the following decades, Dubuffet has received less attention than other artists of his generation, such as Jackson Pollock or Willem de Kooning. This will be the first major museum exhibition devoted to works on paper by one of the most important French artists of the 20th century. Featuring more than one hundred drawings representing Dubuffet's development during his most innovative decades the exhibition will include rarely seen works and major loans from public and private collections in the United States and France. Exhibition: Morgan Library & Museum, New York, USA (30.09.2016 - 02.01.2017) / Hammer Museum, Los Angeles, USA (29.01. - 30.04.2017).
